Crypto might not be one of the meta legends in Apex Legends for Season 7, but there’s two handy tricks that will certainly help those who decide to main him get the best out of the Surveillance Expert.
Any player can learn how to play one of fifteen Legends available to choose in Apex. However, to truly master a Legend you need to know the character inside-out.
There’s no better way of developing your knowledge of a Legend than taking advice from players who have committed hundreds of hours to learn their strengths and weaknesses.
For Crypto mains, a video posted to Reddit has revealed a few details that will definitely help take the character to the next level.
Two tricks every Crypto main should know
In a video posted to the Apex University subreddit, user EhWhateverOk uncovers two essential tips for mastering the Legend. Although the tricks seem simple, it’s surprising how few Crypto players use them to their advantage.
Earlier in the season, members of the community were using his drone to make a flying Rampart minigun, before it was patched. Now, players can hold down the tactical button to place down the drone without entering drone view – which puts you at a real advantage.
This allows you to place down your drone in heated gunfights without putting yourself at risk to enemies.
A common mistake made by Crypto players is getting separated from their team due to using his drone view at the wrong time. This tip allows players to place down Crypto’s drone without the risk of isolating themselves from their team, or leaving him vulnerable.

Therefore, you can also be close to the enemy team when using the ultimate. Simply fly the drone high enough so the spherical hit radius only hits the enemy team and not you.
This is a tip that is so obvious, but not all will know it’s possible to use their ultimate when in close quarters with enemies. Often, Crypto mains will use their ultimate and hit themselves with the radius. As seen in the video, to reduce the hitbox, players will need to fly the drone high enough so only the bottom of the spherical hit radius is used.
Although EhWhateverOk’s video only contains two tips, they’re both incredibly useful to know.
